2008 Tongass Land Management Plan Amendment

The Tongass National Forest announced that it will be amending the 2008 Tongass Land Management Plan.  A five year review of the current plan found that changes need to be made in order to meet the forest’s goals of transitioning to a predominantly young growth-based timber program in the next 10-15 years.  The Tongass has also launched a federal advisory committee (Tongass Advisory Committee) to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service on the transition to young growth timber, including the forest plan amendment.
